Thanks for posting your question. Do you use any version of VS, at present ?
Thanks for using JustAnswer. My name isXXXXX will do whatever I can to answer your question

Are you referring to the whole program. Or the VS C++ runtime components?

Please provide the both - Complete one and one that for c# XXXXX .


It's for making ASP.Net Pages

click here for the SDK, this is the stripped down basic version

this is a 30 day trial of the full version

if you want the full version after the trial expires you will have to purchase a license key for it.

You can purchase that directly through microsoft and will be given the option the first time you run the program.

If you already have a key for it, you will have the option to use your key when you install the program.

let me know if you need anything else

Is there offline download version for Visual studio 2010 ?

what do you mean by offline download?

You need to be online to download something.

Do you mean an image file that you burn to a CD?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

What you provide is 4 mb , and download online from microsoft , guess the internet stopped for a minute , I'll start from the beginning !


So I need the full ISO file 3 GB or little more or less :)

are you a student at a college or university?

If you are you can get the software for free from

note this only works if you have a valid student ID

if this does not work

you will need to create an MSDN account to access the software images. and there are subscription fees for this.


there is also an express stripped down version here

there is no other place where you can get a FULL CD Image, at least not legally.

I installed :


and successfully completed .


but when I install :


I see this error message :


What's the solution ?




I can help you fix that.

You need to download and install the service pack 1 update before installing the SDK

you can get the update from here

I guess the cnet version did not include service pack 1.

let me know if this works
